Amy Folkestad is a graphic designer in Centennial, CO

Growing your business through design

As a graphic designer my main goal is to help your business grow and become more profitable through functional, user friendly, beautiful design. I have a degree in biology and art and love combining my analytical and artistic skills. Graphic design has been a natural transition for me, since understanding the aesthetic design, as well as planning and executing the function for a design, requires both left and right brain thinking.

If you are in need of a graphic designer for web or print, or would like to hire me to teach you how to accomplish a specific task, please contact me at amy@avsdesignstudio.com.
